FBI Director James Comey was fired by US President Donald Trump who is busy in cleansing the appointments made by the Obama administration. He fired Attorney General Preet Barara who famously appeared in many trials exposing scandals and fraud.
The letter which was sent to the FBI Director is produced below:
Days before getting fired, told lawmakers that he sought more resources for his agency’s probe into possible collusion between Trump’s presidential campaign and Russia to sway the 2016 U.S. election, which has been echoed by Hillary Trump who was defeated in one of the narrowly contested Presidential election.
In a farewell letter to staff , Comey, who was appointed by Democratic President Barack Obama, said he had “long believed that a president can fire an FBI director for any reason, or for no reason at all.”
While it is evident that Trump facing dissent even from his own party, need less to say that he faces a wrath with the Democratic party, the Trump administration accused Comey of “atrocities” on the job while denying it vehemently on whether the firing was related to the FBI’s Russia investigation.
Democrats said that Comey’s removal was intended to undermine the Federal Bureau of Investigation probe. They also demanded an independent investigation into the alleged Russian meddling as it was not gone down well among the public as well. The issue has been watched closely across the globe and actions that were being taken by Mr Trump were not something that was expected. Opposition parties allege that Trump is doing all these in order to appease Russia as he is touted to be the good friend of Russian President Vladimir Putin.
